We drove to Middletown after reading Frosty Freez had some of the best ice cream in RI. It was a cute spot with a handful of tables and a decent variety of flavors. I didn't find it to be top quality, but it was good...More

This place is about as retro as it comes in such a good way. From the crowded parking lot, to the walk up window, to the friendly, helpful, patient servers. I feel like a child again as we all hang out at the picnic tables...More

Hard core local spot! An absolute must that you clear your calendar religiously every April 1st for the opening. You must wait in a line that snakes through the parking lot, and you will savor the true end of winter, rain, snow or shine!!!!

Frosty Freez serves only the BEST soft-serve real ice cream from Garelick Farms, and we offer 18 flavors of awesome hard ice cream from different vendors (Hershey's, Gifford's and Bliss Dairy, we picked our favorites!) We serve Only8 Frozen Yogurt, which is a non-fat, low-sugar treat that is safe for most diabetics and people with lactose intolerance, and we also carry sugar-free and dairy-free options. We're known for our fast, friendly service and reasonable prices, we keep the place clean as a whistle, and we care about our community. We work hard to make our shop a great place to take the whole family, or a date, or your friends, or just treat yourself!
